    From someone that was never in that position. I was and I am here to tell you that the only difference between me and the ones that don't get out is the ambition to do so. Anyone that has a TV sees what it takes to get out of poverty.

    Don't be so hard on yourself.
    I'm not, there's nothing wrong with knowing who and what you are. I may not be launching rockets into space, but I'm raising 5 kids, my wife stays at home with them and I've never taken a dime in welfare of any kind. It's funny you act like the champion of the poor underprivileged until you come across one that made it without your help. Who's paying for your college, by the way?

    I'm sure this made sense to you. My point was, don't pretend like you speak for all taxpayers. You don't. You speak for the Far Right faction of the Republican Party, which is, thank God, still a minority and likely to remain so.

    No fear of you or your kids ever being in the military, right? That's for lesser folks than rich lawyers.

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    Obama was talking about allowing the top Bush tax cuts to sunset, which would have very little impact on a family making $250k, because it would only impose a small increase on income over $200k (actually with a cutoff somewhere between that and $250k). Subsequently Democrats amended their proposal so that the higher rates would only apply to income over $1 million -- which I think qualifies as well off no matter where you live.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    When the USA had that rate on the books, were we a fascistic nation in any other respect?

    And it is still extremely sad for anyone here to advocate murder because they cannot win a debate on public policy in the real arena.

    I also wonder how many points Obama will drop in the polls after that obvious "war on women" statement by a liberal pundit.
    Hardly a war on women statement by a liberal pundit. More a 'war on wealthy women who pretend they know what average women go through'. Not quite up there with the trans-vaginal probes you guys on the right are so fond of.

    In my opinion it's exactly what he said. I know the type. They're the ones who went on to be corporate attorneys when the rest of us were being drafted. Let the lesser people do the dirty work has always been the attitude of the rich.
